LONDON, U.K, January 8, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – The Moderna developed COVID-19 vaccine has been approved for use in the U.K., marking the third COVID vaccine to be approved in the country.

Announcing the news on Twitter, Secretary for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock, stated that it was “fantastic” and  “another weapon in our arsenal to tame this awful disease.” The U.K. has now ordered 17 million doses of the vaccine, although the vaccine itself is not expected to arrive until the spring. 

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) approved the vaccine following a review held today.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had previously authorized the emergency use of the vaccine shortly before Christmas. 

Like the similarly approved Pfizer vaccine, Moderna’s vaccine uses mRNA technology, which is a type of RNA“that carries genetic information to make proteins in a cell,” and causes our cells to manufacture their own viral particles that will trigger our immune defense response.

It also uses the aborted fetal cell line HEK 293 in order to produce a Spike protein contained in the vaccine. Children of God for Life has compiled research to show that Moderna “extensively” uses the “aborted fetal cell line HEK-293” in the “fundamental design of mRNA technology, their Spike protein and in the research, development, production and testing.” 

Moderna’s vaccine is claimed to be 94% effective in preventing COVID-19, although Moderna have admitted that the vaccine will cause at least mild or moderate side effects. 

Twenty percent of people receiving the high dose in trials needed hospitalization; only 45 people were tested, and they were specifically chosen for being exceptionally healthy and fit.

Documents from the FDA showed evidence that 13 people died during the trials of the vaccine, with 6 deaths being people who had taken the vaccine, and 7 those who had received the placebo. The results were correct up until December 3. Moderna does not connect any of the 13 deaths to either the vaccine or the placebo, saying instead that “[t]hese deaths represent events and rates that occur in the general population of individuals in these age groups.”

Mainstream media sources are promoting offensive suggestions by some doctors that people who refuse a vaccine for COVID-19 should be "punished" by the government and by business - effectively coercing them into taking the vaccine.

  • One group of doctors writing in 'USA Today' suggested that the government impose special taxes (i.e., fines) on people who refuse the vaccination and that business simply refuse to serve them. [see story below]
  • Another doctor writing in an online publication called 'The Conversation' shamelessly suggested that people who refuse a vaccine should be given a psychoactive drug to induce compliance. [see story below]

But, these suggestions are plain political posturing, and have nothing to do with science or with the recent trends of the disease.

And, in case they haven't noticed, we live in a democracy not a medical dictatorship!

Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks policy-makers and business people, at all levels, to pledge to respect the rights of those who, in good conscience, decide not to vaccinate themselves or their children.

People should not have to live in fear of governmental or corporate retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

It would be intolerable and immoral for the government or business to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will to avoid a fine, or just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping.

Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.

So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished for refusing a vaccine.

Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.

Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.

We can no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question, especially now that, statistically speaking, the initial brunt of the COVID crisis has passed.

Neither can we accept the dictates of doctors who seem detached from reality and from science, and who only seem to be attached to the idea of promoting ideas which contribute to the agrandizement of power and control of political interests, and wealth of those who stand to make a lot of money from the sale of a COVID vaccine.

Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks government and business leaders to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and not seek to punish them for doing so.

The FDA documents come in addition to the news of a Ukranian Greek Catholic priest who died suddenly in his home after previously being a volunteer in the testing of Moderna’s vaccine. Fr. John Fields apparently suffered a heart attack just under two months after his second jab, although it is still unclear if the 70-year-old’s death is related to the vaccine.

In addition to this, the FDA previously released its own warning for any potential COVID-19 vaccine, including strokes, encephalitis, auto-immune disease, birth defects, and Kawasaki disease among the potential side-effects to be monitored. First on the list of 22 possible conditions is “Guillain-Barré syndrome,” described as “a rare disorder in which your body’s immune system attacks your nerves.” The syndrome has “no known cure,” and its mortality rate is “4% to 7%.”

“There may be limited information available at licensure on level and duration of effectiveness,” the text reads. This might prompt manufacturers to “conduct certain COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness post-licensure studies.”

Since then, the FDA also issued a staff report, warning of “facial paralysis,” or Bell’s Palsy, as a possible condition to be looked for in those who take the Moderna vaccine. Four out of the 30,000 original participants in the trial developed the condition, with 3 in the vaccine group and 1 in the placebo group. 

The report notes a “small imbalance” in participants reporting Bell’s Palsy, adding that one lady in the vaccine group had to be hospitalized “for stroke due to new facial paralysis 32 days after vaccination.” Two other cases of the condition in the vaccine group reported the effects 28 days and 22 days after vaccination.

Moderna stopped the testing of its highest dose of vaccine, due to the number of reports of severe reactions, and animal testing was skipped altogether. Dr. James Lyons-Weiler noted how Moderna had been allowed to skip important steps, meaning that the FDA was unable “to see if this particular vaccine or that particular vaccine might cause serious problems through pathogenic priming.”

Despite these health concerns, the U.K. vaccine minister Nadhim Zahawi, welcomed the vaccine approval, saying “The Moderna vaccine will be a vital boost to these efforts and will help us return to normal faster.”

His words were echoed by Business Secretary Alok Sharma, who hailed the news as “Another huge step towards ending lockdown and returning to normal life.”
